Corporate and philanthropic partners can strengthen communities — and their balance sheets — by investing long-term capital in community development financial institutions (CDFIs) based on geography, balance sheet size, and focus.
Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) represents a diverse national network of more than 350 CDFIs. We are a fund-of-funds manager and trusted intermediary with more than 35 years of experience and approximately $1 billion in assets under management.
There are more than 1,200 CDFIs nationwide driving capital to disinvested rural, urban, Native, and other persistent poverty communities across America.
Ways to Invest in CDFIs
Invest in CDFIs Directly
CDFIs leverage partner funding with other sources of capital to lend in their communities. And when borrowers repay their loans, CDFIs recycle the money to new borrowers, multiplying the impact each dollar has on local economies.
Identify CDFIs that best meet your impact objectives.
OFN guides investors and funders to achieve their financial and social impact investment goals and expand economic opportunity. We offer a tailored portfolio of OFN member CDFIs diversified across geographies and balance sheet sizes.
